The ultimate battle is on Skechers Streetdance Battle 7


The ultimate battle is on. The Skechers Streetdance Battle is back for its 7th year with more high school and college dance crews, from all over the Philippines, risking it all for a shot at streetdance supremacy and a P100,000 grand prize. The first Skechers Streetdance Battle molded the Philippines’ streetdance scene. Now seven years later, the Skechers Streetdance Battle—the biggest, toughest and hottest streetdance battle—just keeps getting better. Hours before the Skechers Streetdance Battle 7 kick-off party started, streetdance enthusiasts and participants were already huddled around the SM Mall of Asia Music Hall for the first ever Skechers One-on-One Battle Pit--a head-to-head tournament-style dance off for aspiring streetdancers. Even the pouring rain was unable to suppress the intensity of the start of this year’s Streetdance Battle. Fans, schoolmates and friends of participating schools’ showed their support by posing at their respective school banners. Unity, school spirit, and the chance to win big bucks are all thrown into the mix as Skechers is offering Php10,000 to the school with the best mob photo.

These “mobs” also get to participate some more for their beloved crews with the addition the Skechers Streetdance Battle 7 Online Voting Component. The Online Voting will decide this year’s People’s Choice winner. In order to vote, visit skechersstreetdance
